Development Realities

Did you know that:

  • Up to 40% of all wastewater IoT installations could face cellular challenges?
  • 60% will present an easier installation prospect than others?
  • 30% could give lower data relevance due to asset type?

Consequences of Chance

A randomised approach to site selection often leads to staggering statistics with revisits and relocations exceeding 35% during the rollout phase. Site revisits reduce project effectiveness and cause project delays leading cost overruns and requiring further budget.

At UDlive we have the technology to support our customers to prioritise sites for mass deployment projects. By reviewing the entire catchment for relevant (i.e. underground) cellular reception, ease of installation* and data relevance* to ensure that:

  • Projects are front loaded, delivering both early success and a logical ramp in complexity.
  • Deployment teams gain experience through simpler installations during the initial ramp-up.
  • Installers approach challenging sites armed with advanced insights, guaranteeing that they possess the necessary equipment and skills for a flawless first-time fit.


Our method of preselecting sites with a higher likelihood of success increases the "Fit Right, First Time" rate, mitigating risks and significantly reducing the need for revisits.

Consider this: Site-related issues demanding revisits cost a whopping 2.8 times more than straightforward installations. By reducing site revisits by 17% site revisits whole project savings of 24% can be achieved. Factoring in all associated costs, and you could secure a remarkable 15% net savings, all while ensuring superior data quality and accelerating project completion.

The newfound site confidence and positivity spread throughout the entire project, truly positioning customers for remarkable success.
